AHL Prospect News:

Ice Hogs prospects to keep an eye on:

Brandon Pirri: Lead the entire league in points last year.

Jeremy Morin: Lead the team in goals last year.

Phillip Danault: First full year as a pro.

Mark McNeill: First full year as a pro.

Drew LeBlanc: First full year as a pro. 

Maxim Shalunov: Over from Russia. Had a good camp with the Hawks.

Garret Ross: Played very well in Juniors. Was a teammate of B.Saad. 

Adam Clendening: Will strive to be a 1st team All-Star.

Viktor Svedberg: The 6'8" Swede the Hawks are keeping a strong eye on. 

Dylan Olsen: Make or break year for this kid. Is he going to step up? Had a good camp with Hawks.

Antti Raanta: Swedish Player of the year. Goaltender with a very strong upside.

Ice Hogs have a strong team with some players that have proven NHL experience. (Brad Winchester, Theo Peckham)
